Kudos for Mandrake 8.0 from FreeOS.com, which says the worst problems of the 7.2 release, a buggy and inconsistent installation, have been largely overcome.
"Those of you, who recall our previous review on Mandrake 7.2, may remember our main grouse - a buggy and inconsistent install procedure. Now whether that was due to software bugs or a bad download was never resolved. We also got tons of comments from our readers some of who experienced the same problems. We faithfully forwarded the comments to the Mandrake team hoping for some reaction. Well, there were none forthcoming, however if this new release is an indication, it appears they do take their customers seriously. Mandrake 8.0, the Traktopel version is all that a newcomer to Linux could ask for and more. Who says the Linux desktop is dead!"
